But his friend, Rafi, is still possessed; the succubus Ajulutsikael (Juliet to her friends) still technically has a contract on him; and he's still dirt poor. Doing some consulting for the local constabulary helps pay the bills, but Castor needs a big, private job to really fill the hole in his overdraft.
That's what he needs. What he gets - good fortune and Castor not being on speaking terms - is a seemingly insignificant "missing ghost" case that inexorably drags him and his loved ones into the middle of a horrific plot to raise one of Hell's fiercest demons. When Satanists, sacrifice farms, stolen spirits, and possessed churches all appear on the same police report, the name of Felix Castor can't be too far behind.

"The well-developed main character appears more than capable of carrying a series for many books to come." (Publishers Weekly)
"Carey juggles characters and bits and pieces of plot like a man with a thousand arms, catching each word and positioning it in exactly the right place in this deftly crafted, can't-turn-the-page-fast-enough read." (Kirkus)
I was not impressed with this sequel. I thought the narration was comprised of too many of cliches and pointless information. The protagonist was more often than not a hapless, yet very lucky idiot. I began to become very indifferent to his plight. Kramer does a wonderful job with the "Wheel of Time" series, but is awful with this one. Perhaps a narrator who can do a passable British accent?? This book was not enough to leave me longing for Book III, even with the obvious cliffhangers.
I like the author and the story is entertaining but unfortunately the audio file is corrupted and missing the ending. DO NOT BUY IT, unless you wish to be like me and have an audiobook with no ending.
